Building a Health Care Team
Proactive and planned health care is the best way to keep your body and mind as fit and in shape as possible. It is essential to keep your body balanced, aligned and stress-free making it better able to resist the challenges of your environment. And while there are many aspects of health care that are necessary to keep you functioning at your highest level you cannot do it yourself, so it is important to have a healthcare team in place.
This health care team is absolutely vital in maintaining health, preventing disease and living well.
Nutritionists & Dieticians
Good nutrition is crucial to keeping yourself healthy. A certified nutritionist or dietician can assist you in developing an eating plan that fits your lifestyle and your current health condition. They can also help you choose a supplement program that can fill in the gaps of your diet and help you counterbalance your family history.
The purpose of massage is to increase circulation and relaxa-tion. It has been proven to relieve a variety of conditions such as leg cramps and headaches, and even the discomfort of PMS symptoms and pregnancy. Massage is quickly becoming an accepted method of pain management. In 2005, one in five Americans opted for massage therapy and those numbers are growing. Regular massage keeps your body stress free, re-laxed and healthy.
Primary Health Care Providers
These doctors can help keep you in the know about your num-bers. You may only be thinking about pounds, but your primary health care providers are thinking about other numbers like blood pressure, cholesterol, body fat percentage, blood sugar and annual tests. These are important for disease detection and prevention.
Providers include chiropractors, internists, pediatricians, dent-ists, optometrists and podiatrists. One of the most important providers is a chiropractor. Regular chiropractic adjustments help you maintain flexibility by removing nerve interference from your spinal system.
Choose a personal trainer that is certified by a professional association to make sure you are receiving appropriate advice and training. Review your exercise program every three to six months with your trainer. Revisit your goals on a regular basis and maintain good communication with your trainer.
Making sure the right people are on your health care team is an important part of maintaining the best health possible and living an active life. Building a health care team to keep you in the best shape of your life is the true purpose of health care.
